Thread: I am looking for a newbie friendly forum for MFSM2020 where questions do get answered

  1. #1

    Default I am looking for a newbie friendly forum for MFSM2020 where questions do get answered

    The title says it all. The only posts that have replies here are the ones that are either bashing MS or Asobo or comments to published articles. If you are a newbie ands ask any questions about the Sim, the post gets hundreds if not thousands of views, but nobody take the time to reply. I guess it goes back to an article that was published here a while back about the state of the community. We are not flying the friendly skies anymore.
    If you know of a link to a good FS forum for newbies, just put it on the reply. Thank you!

    Can't speak for others but the last 4 times I have helped someone on this forum have not received a thanks or even an acknowledgement. Totally ignored.

    This was from members with posts behind them. I find members with one post or just a few, very often never come back after their question. I have long since ignored newbies on every forum for this reason.

    Sorry this does not help but stating how I see things and at least I'm honest about it.

    What question was ignored? I look down and every thread has a reply except one. That post was just pointing out an observation, not a post asking for help.
    I specifically took the time to not only explain how to assign a tail number to a newbie, I took a screen shot to show him specifically how to find the needed input. What more do you WANT????

    That is a big pet peeve of mine. If I ask a question and I know someone takes the time out of their lives to answer it I have always thanked them for their attempt at helping me. Don't understand why some others don't do that.

    Way to go, Mark, CONGRATS on being a Senior now!!! It also drives me crazy when members ask, sometimes plead for help, you go out of the way to help them and never see a reply. Oh well, I hear you loud and clear!

    Rick !!

    And THANKS for the congrats!

    Rick, I not long ago PM'd a guy an over 1 gig file I uploaded to help him out. Contents would've saved him hours and hours of work with fixes that he almost certainly wasn't even capable of ever doing himself. Heck, he wasn't even capable of using the unfixed files on his own that's why I uploaded the file for him WITH additional fixes. It was install away, nothing more to do!

    Nothing back from him...nada...blows my mind! lol

    One other reason occurs to me. While it doesn't account for all failures to answer, this sim is so new that sometimes no one knows the answer, especially with all the weird happenings after an update.
